This is a truly amazing 100% original multiple crinoid death plate from the Mississippian Era Gilmore City Formation of Gilmore City, Iowa.  At least 43 exceptionally preserved specimens, a couple more may have been overlooked! This classic location has been closed to collecting for many years.  There are 42 identified crinoid crowns representing at least 4 genera on the slab and one species unknown and are each labeled with a small number on a red-dot sticker next to each. The identification key list is provided to the winning bidder.  Many specimens exhibit their original stems attached and all have their feathery arms.  The identification is provided as follows:

10) Eretmocrinus tentor on front, and 1) on the back.

22) Dichocrinus multiplex,

7) Cercidocrinus fimbria,

3) Aorocrinus iola

1) unidentified crown. 

This plate is just teeming with crinoids (the eBay 12 photo limit only allowed a few to be shown individually). These crinoids are beautifully displayed, the plate itself measures 9 inches across and 8 inches high by about 2 inches thick.  These fossil echinoderms have great color and contrast and are naturally positioned on the rectangular plate of limestone, no composites!  This is one of the best crinoid multiples you will find from this classic locality, and with 44 or more crowns on it, it has a starting bid that’s only a fraction of it’s true value.

CRINOID  Macrocrinus mundulus, synbathocrinus swallovi,  Barycrinus stellatus

Super Multiple Plate Of Ammonites From Germany .

Dactylioceras Schaffhausen, Germany 165 million years old.

Name:   Dactylioceras sp.

Age: Upper Lias ,  Jurassic , 165 Million years old

Location: Schaffhausen , Southern Germany

Size: 18 inches x 12 inches, Shipping weight 20 Kgs.

This is a very displayable Mulity plate of ammonites locally know as a “DEATH BED” . These are Dactylioceras sp. from the Jurassic of Germany 165 Million Years ago . This is a natural piece – there have been no ammonites added or composite. This type of ammonite has very fine ribbing and a rounded keel. The ammonites are quite inflated and exhibit fine detail. The ribbing pattern is easily seen and many of the cephalopods show the smaller, inner whorls. The natural yellowish coloration of the fossils is outstanding and contrasts beautifully with the dark brown matrix. This is a very appealing ammonite specimen from Germany.

This is a huge, amazing, naturally pyritized Harpoceras ammonite on a shale plate. The Harpoceras specimen measures an impressive 10″ in diameter. The matrix (plate) measures 18″ x 16″. The last photo shows how it is conveniently ready to be wall-mounted.

The Holzmaden Shale from Western Germany is a unique fossil locale that produces some of the world’s most impressive, museum quality ammonite fossils. This spectacular animal lived during the Jurassic Period (approximately 175 million years ago). Remarkably, this specimen is complete with no restoration. It is truly beautiful — the camera doesn’t completely capture its vivid, light golden colour. The value of this extraordinary piece surely exceeds the starting price. Note that Harpoceras ammonites of similar (or lesser) quality or size have sold for a far greater price on the internet! This exquisite pyritization and preservation is unique to one location in the world: the Holzmaden Shale, which has yielded some of the world’s greatest ammonites. This specimen is a prime example of the beauty that only nature can offer.
